In Ricky's defense with the whole O2 sensor issue, Mr. Tummala with the badass M119 560 told me himself it would be ok to replace my O2 sensor when it came time with a Ford 5.0 part. He's not the only one. I have read a few times on this forum about people either using or recommending the Ford O2 sensor. I've also seen that said on other MB fix-it sites. So this must not be so uncommon. You're not the only one Ricky, and I know where you're comin from with the money issue because I'm 19 too.
